Our beautiful ‘Tree of Thanks’ stands proudly in the main reception area at the heart of St John’s Hospice. Adorned with copper, silver and gold leaves this is a tree like no other.
There are so many times that we get asked by people who have been touched by the work of the hospice how they can help. By dedicating a leaf on our tree to a loved one or a friend, or by leaving a simple message of thanks to someone who has made a difference in your life, you will be helping to sustain and grow the hospice services. In return we can thank you for your kindness and support by engraving your special message on a leaf to be displayed on the tree.
Every single leaf purchased will help to pay for the costs of care for our patients and their families. Your donation will not only help today but means you will be part of our future.
It’s so easy to place a leaf on the Tree of Thanks. You can chose how long you would like the leaf to remain on the tree, and at the end of this time you will be able to renew your leaf for a further period, or we will send you the leaf as a special keepsake.
Copper leaf – £100 for one year
Silver leaf – £175 for two years
Gold leaf – £450 for five years
St John’s Hospice is a charity, not part of the NHS, and we fund the majority of the care we provide ourselves. In fact, for approximately every £1 that we spend we need to raise 70p through donations. So, we rely upon the generosity of the local community and organisations to keep our doors open to people who are affected by life limiting conditions and need our support.
Thanks to a generous award from the ‘Keswick to Barrow Walk Committee’ we have been able to fund the purchase of the tree. The money donated by you will be spent directly on caring for our patients and their families.
